Since childhood, Steve Ryan has always been active in a variety of sports including football, basketball, judo, squash, tennis and long distance running. After developing pain in his left pelvis, Steve discovered he was suffering with the onset of degenerative arthritis.
Steve found The McMinn Centre after doing his own research and discovering Mr McMinn’s pioneering work. After his condition worsened and the pain started to affect his walking, Steve knew exactly where to go. “When the time came I knew with some confidence that the BHR was the answer.” Recovering quickly from the operation, Steve was pain free ‘immediately afterwards’.
“I am now leading a much fulfilled active life playing basketball, skiing and golf in addition to gym activities.” On top of this, Steve recently took on the challenge to cycle from Land’s End to Hertfordshire for charity, covering 330 miles in four days. “I trained for approximately 5 weeks and despite giving away 10 (or in some cases 20!) years to my companions I was one of the fittest and strongest riders in the group.”
